Mast Cell Tumors #2 [MP3]

Ask Dr. Dressler: More Thoughts On Mast Cell Tumors

Dr. Dressler revisits one of the most common canine cancers, particularly in the skin: mast cell tumors. (It is not mass cell tumor as is commonly thought.) In this seminar he addresses:

  • What we’ve learned about mast cell tumors in the last couple of years
  • C-kit genetic mutations and how knowing your dog’s status may help you decide how to treat the cancer
  • Reliable conventional treatments for mast cell tumors
  • Alternative treatments that have been shown to be effective
  • Diet considerations for dogs with mast cell tumors
  • The things you can do right now to help your dog
  • Add this information to what you learn in The Dog Cancer Survival Guide

As always, Dr. Dressler also answers questions from members about their dog’s cancer.
